1956 – The Eurocentres are created

“Learning languages where they are actually spoken” – this is the slogan used by Migros to advertise its European Education Centres, which start offering language courses abroad in 1956. By staying with host families, students not only learn the language, they also get to know the country and its culture. After becoming an independent foundation in 1960, Eurocentres now offer courses in 30 locations on 5 continents.
